Dimension Four

1. With each step, I grow a beard.
With each hat, it grows white.

2.  I met myself at 6 years old at a crossroads.
He asked me if I were the devil.  I kept walking.

3.  When asked if I could do it over again, would I,
I answer differently depending on the color of my hair.

4.  I met myself at 13 years old at a crossroads.
He beat me up and yelled at me for lying.  I laid there.

5.  When I die, my life will flash before my eyes,
and none of it will be familiar to me.

6.  I met myself at 27 years old at a crossroads.
He shook my hand and smiled.  I walked away, upbeat.

7.  If I am different with every passing moment, and every seven years,
is my name a bracket holding together multiple people?

8.  I met myself at 31 years old at a crossroads.
He asked me plainly if I should keep going.  I lied to him.

9.  Time
Is a bitch.

10.  I met myself at 38 years old at a crossroads.
We looked each other in the eyes before he ran away.  I followed him.

11.  Every part of every person is unique.
But every part of every person is changing.

12.  I met myself at birth at a crossroads.
I smiled and picked him up saying, You have no idea what you're getting into.

13.  Time
is a bitch.

14.  I met myself at a crossroads.
We stared at each other long in the eyes.

We kept walking.
The Best of Lemon Fingers
Shadukha's Seal of Approval
Every day each member of the staff here at Lemon Fingers selects a piece that they consider to be the very best of Lemon Fingers.
This piece was featured on 25th of March 2010 by Shadukha from a suggestion by GJ.
"It's hard to put a finger on what I love about this piece, but I love it. The unusual format kind of grabs my attention, and the theme (with its occasional ominous undertones) is something to give one pause."
